Is CNN Breaking US & World News safe for my kids?

This app is safe for any older children and mature teens. While some of the content and news featured in this app may be a bit mature for them, the information in this app is no worse than what a viewer would see on basic cable news each day.

If children are particularly interested in using this app and reading the news, parents may want to open a dialogue concerning what they are reading and some the more mature themes. Kids may not always understand politics and world issues and having a parent involved in their usage can help them understand further as well as engage them in the topics they are learning about.

Parents should know that the advertisements served in this app will redirect users to a third party website and should encourage their kids not to follow these links as some of them may be pretty scammy.

There is no commenting or messaging features in this app so parents will not need to worry about their children coming into contact with strangers.
